    L'Hotel de ville

    by gabyne Written Jun 11, 2005

    As many buildings in Bormes, the "Hotel de Ville", the city hall, is worth a look. All the houses here are painted in warm, not too bright colours like ocher, creme, terracotta.

    view on Bormes

    by gabyne Written Jun 11, 2005

    Just park your car and stroll through the streets. There are so many great views over the village or on some private houses and gardens as well as on churches and public buildings.

    Bormes-les-Mimosas was awarded the "4 flowers" label, the highest distinction towns and villages in flower. It won this contest 3 times already. There are beautiful flowers everywhere which makes it one of the nicest flower villages (or even the nicest) in France.

    Bormes is a medieval village, dating back to the 12th century which you can see at every corner.

    Lou Portaou outside dining

    by myriam_c Updated Jun 14, 2005

    This little gem is hidden in a small former watchman's house. In the dining room there is furniture and objects from the middle ages.
    The 'cuisine' of the chef Robert Chiu is a typical 'cuisine du terroir' of the Mediterranean and Provence.
    Olives and most of their côtes de provence wines are from really local produce, from nearby vineyards.
    In the summer outside dining on the sidewalk terrace - the whole centre of Bormes is for pedestrians only.

    Favorite Dish: Their dining formula is priced at 39 euro for a 3-course meal (incl. a small pre-starter) with different choices for each course. Their à la carte prices are 14 euro for the starters, 20 euro for the main courses and 10 euro for the desserts.

    What we had:
    Pre-starter: Tarte de thon aux lentilles et mousse d'asperges = a tart-shaped 3-colored mousse of tunafish, lentils and asparagus

    Starters:
    Husband: Tomate 'chair de boeuf' au chèvre et avocat, au pistou = a (new variety) tomato filled with a mixture of soft goat cheese and avocado, served with pesto
    Me: Tarte feuilletée au saumon et poivrons = puff pastry with fresh salmon and bell peppers

    Mains:
    Husband: bouillabaisse de lapin et crustacés, au saffran avec sa sauce rouille = bouillabaisse of rabbit (!) and crustaceans, with saffron and rouille
    Me: dos de cabillaud roti aux échalottes en sauce vin rouge, accompagné de coeur de blé aux petits légumes = grilled cod with shallots in red wine sauce, served with wheat and small veggies

    Dessert:
    grand dessert = a little bit of everything

Bormes-les-Mimosas Off The Beaten Path

    Bormes, up in the hills

    by egonwegh Updated Sep 12, 2011

    Made a walking trip of about 7 kilometers to the Chapel of Notre Dame de Constance in the hills above Bormes-Les-Mimosas and back again. Modest difficulty, no steep ascent or descent, but not much shade either. It would be better not to undertake this walk in the heat of the day.
